Use the Flare Launcher in Krasarang Cove to signal the Alliance fleet.


For too long the Horde has been allowed to run rampant across Azeroth. I will not see these new lands conquered by some barbaric "warchief."

Are you ready to bring Alliance justice to the shores of Pandaria?

Let us return to the landing site. Use the flare launcher to bring in the fleet proper, and begin Operation: Shieldwall.


You will receive: 9g 92s 50c


<Blue sails are barely visible on the horizon - the full might of the Alliance fleet, awaiting one final signal.>



Head back southeast. On approaching the landing site:

King Varian Wrynn says: Everything is in place. We'll construct a town center on this peninsula, using resources from along the coast.
King Varian Wrynn says: From here we can reach out to the natives and keep Horde aggression in check.
King Varian Wrynn says: Champion! Without your pioneering efforts on Pandaria, this foothold wouldn't have been possible.
King Varian Wrynn says: The honor is yours. Signal the fleet.

Interact with the Flare Launcher to complete the quest.

The main actors

This completes the Lion's Landing portion of Alliance  [Operation: Shieldwall Campaign], and triggers a cutscene, showing Alliance troops coming ashore. On the other side of the cutscene, adventurers regain control at a hastily-built Lion's Landing.

King Varian Wrynn says: Marshal, excellent work fortifying the harbor. Our next priority is -
Anduin Wrynn yells: Father!
King Varian Wrynn says: What-?
King Varian Wrynn says: Anduin... you're safe...
Anduin Wrynn says: Father, you can't do this. All the hatred and anger our war brings here - it poisons this place.
King Varian Wrynn says: Easy, son. We're fighting a different war now. This isn't about hatred of the Horde. This is about a love of what's right. About doing what needs to be done.
Anduin Wrynn says: This land is - different than ours. It's a treasure.
King Varian Wrynn says: Then we'll protect it with our lives. Son, I need you with me on this. We in this together?
Anduin Wrynn says: Together...
Hilda Hornswaggle rides up on her ram.
Hilda Hornswaggle yells: Yer Majesty! The Horde, they've holed up in a temple west of here. Night elf rangers have surrounded it and locked it down...
King Varian Wrynn says: Rangers? ...Tyrande.
Anduin Wrynn says: Father! You can't let them turn the Crane Temple into a war zone! That place is still recovering from a sha infestation...
Hilda Hornswaggle says: AND it's a historical treasure trove.
King Varian Wrynn says: Everyone, calm down. This sounds like one of Garrosh's traps. He's trying to lure us from the beach. Troteman? Round me up some peasants and a mortar team, and don't let down your guard.
Anduin Wrynn says: But father-
King Varian Wrynn says: I'll bring a small group of champions with me and talk to Tyrande myself. Anduin, I can handle this. I need you to trust that I'm going to do the right thing here.
Anduin Wrynn says: ... I trust you, father.
